Science and Technology, accessible for all.

Science Alive is a charitable trust established in 1991, by local innovators who share a passion for science and technology. The vision was clear: to inspire the public through interactive experiences and accessible education.

Backed by a robust network of expertise, Science Alive operates as a hub for science and technology nationwide.

Formerly celebrated as a beloved physical center in the heart of Canterbury, we're now thrilled to extend the Science Alive experience to the digital realm, making it accessible to all.
